A Canadian company hoping to build what it bills as the future of public transportation will seek permits this week to set up a testing centre in central France for developing super-fast “hyperloop” trains.

Transpod co-founder Sebastien Gendron said that his company would file its application Aug 10 with officials in the Haute-Vienne region for a three-kilometre (1.9-mile) track, which it claims would be the longest in the world.
